Solutions for tomorrow’s world
Tackling the major challenges of the future is something we have been doing for over 130 years. As a reinsurer, we operate internationally and apply a range of disciplines to produce pioneering concepts that make tomorrow’s world insurable. Our recipe for success is to anticipate risks and deliver needs-based solutions. This provides the impetus for profitable, long-term growth.
Our success is founded on a solid capital base, in-depth risk expertise, market know-how and an understanding of the refinancing and capital management of primary insurance companies. We invest heavily in order to maintain our lead in the knowledge stakes, and our approximately 11,000 staff in reinsurance possess unique global and local know-how. This strength has earned us top rankings in client surveys. With premium income of over €28bn in financial year 2012, we are one of the world’s leading reinsurers.
Tailor-made solutions for your success
In these days of changing markets with ever more complex risks, our clients increasingly need customised solutions, consultancy and services that go far beyond traditional reinsurance. That is why we seek dialogue with them and take the time to listen to them. We can develop integrated concepts for our clients – from traditional reinsurance to managing large complex risks, and balance-sheet optimisation. We also develop innovative coverages for alternative energies and conduct in-depth geoscientific research.
Risk management is our strength
Our entrepreneurial passion for seeing change as opportunity and never standing still has made us an industry front-runner. We consistently expand and enhance our risk competence through our global network and exchange of knowledge with selected cooperation partners. That is how forward-looking solutions for tomorrow's world are born.
